Haas Multigrind's grinding centres with new tool magazinesClick image to enlarge

Haas Multigrind's grinding centres feature a new tool magazine with space for 70 grinding wheels, creating what the company describes as a "an autonomous, self-equipping production system."

 

All Haas Multigrind grinding centres are available with an automatic wheel changer. This feature enables Haas customers to combine multiple, high precision, complex grinding and milling operations into a single part clamping and single machine cycle. Users can realize significant improvements in overall part quality and significant reductions in overall throughput time and cost.

Now the machines are equipped with a new high capacity “shelf magazine.” On the Multigrind CB grinding machine, the new Haas shelf magazine (2,000 × 2,400 × 3,200 mm, L × W × H) offers space for 65 grinding wheels of up to 300 mm diameter. On the Multigrind CA grinding machine, the shelf magazine can be equipped with up to 70 grinding wheels of up to 250 mm diameter. The magazine can also hold up to 20 coolant nozzles.

The new high capacity magazine enables customers to add more operations on a single part AND to dramatically reduce change-over time between different parts by loading wheels and tools for multiple part numbers in the magazine.

The Haas Horizon programming system maintains locations, dimensions and life information of all wheels and tools in the magazine in addition to programming the machine’s grinding and automation functions.

Even with much more wheel capacity, tool change time on the new shelf magazine is only 10 seconds.

"We’re not aware of any other tool magazine that offers as much space and flexibility,” says Dirk Wember, Haas Multigrind’s president.

The system was first unveiled to the general public in April 2017 at Haas’s GrindDate, their in-house trade fair. In June is created strong interest when presented at the Paris Airshow.
